Porcupine Gold Mines Camp -

- 100th Anniversary Video -



The Porcupine Camp is dotted with head frames
and open pit mines;
some old, some newer, evidence of our mining heritage.

Historically, the district has been a major producer
of both gold and base metals.

Timmins Porcupine Gold -

Along the Porcupine-Destor Fault, which runs 200km from Timmins
to Destor in Quebec, over 65 million ounces of gold
have been mined.

Head frames towering majestically in our city's skyline
conjure up images of adventure and heroism.

As picturesque as they are, their presence served a
necessary, practical function for past miners.

The McIntyre Gold Mine

Is the 3rd largest producer of gold in Canada
with a production of 10.8 million oz.

Prospectors Alexander Olifant (alias Sandy McIntyre) and
Hans Buttner staked their claims on the shores of Pearl Lake
in 1909.
The mine operated between 1912 and 1988.
It consisted of an underground mining operation with several
access shafts and vent raises as well as a mill, shops, and
office buildings.
The McIntyre arena was built in 1938 for the workers' and
their families' recreational activities.
At one point, copper was found in the area, and by 1963,
copper ore recovered exceeded gold production.
The only remaining building, following the demolition of
the mine site in 2001, was the Shaft No. 11 head frame
and a shed containing electrical switchgear
for the head frame.
The headframe was completed in 1927.

The McIntyre was the first mine in Canadian history
to use rubber liners in milling and the first in
the Porcupine Camp to apply square-set and cut and fill
stoping mining methods underground.
Gunitting was developed at the McIntyre and it adapted
and introduced flotation to gold milling and the mine was
the first in Ontario to sink a shaft to below 4,000 ft.

Also, then McIntyre Mine Manager Ennis took the lead in mine
safety establishing early procedures which gave a daily report
on safety conditions underground, a standard that is
common today.
There has been an extensive degree of rehabilitation and
exploration work performed in and around
the old McIntyre Mine property in recent years.

The City of Timmins has redeveloped the head frame and
its immediate surroundings as a heritage monument to
gold mining in the Porcupine Camp.

The Hollinger Gold Mine

Hollinger Gold Mine looking east from Goldfields Hotel. **

Operated from 1910 to 1968 and closed due to low gov.
manipulated gold prices.

It is Canada's largest gold producer ever with 19.6 million
ounces produced while in operation.

In October 1909, Benny Hollinger and Alex Gillies made
the discovery that led to the foundation of one of
the world's largest gold mines and the beginning
of the great Porcupine Gold Rush.

The rectangular head frame is a concrete building as opposed
to most other head frames seen in the Timmins skyline,
which are built with either wood or metal.
The large black dome shaped building adjacent to the main head
frame was a storage bin for the ore hoisted from underground.
The old Pump house was used to pump fresh air down into the
mine workings, but is now vacant.

During the summer months, an underground gold mine tour
is offered on a daily basis.
This very exciting and informative journey is a must for
the whole family.

The Paymaster Gold Mine

Was developed by Standard Mines Ltd.
It operated from 1915 to 1966 and produced 1.2 million ounces
of gold.
The main shaft is somewhat run-down but still intact.
The head frame is made of blue and silver sheet metal on
the outside and the interior is constructed with wood.
You can get an excellent view of it from the back road
(across from Simpson Lake on Gold Mine Road).
In 1945, tragedy struck at the Paymaster Mine when the cable
supporting a cage broke, sending 16 men plummeting more
than 1,500 feet to their deaths.

The Dome Gold Mine

Was the first producing gold mine in Timmins.
In the spring of 1909, a prospecting team led by Harry Preston
and Jack Wilson uncovered a mound or dome of golden crusted
They staked their claims and called it "The Big Dome".

The mine started as an underground operation and expanded
to include the super pit. It consists of many buildings
including the head frame (building with the red top),
mill, shops, and office building.

To date, it has produced over 15 million ounces of gold.

Not only was it one of the first mines to be discovered,
but it is Canada's longest running gold mine.

Pamour Mine/Porcupine Joint Venture

Its ore body was first staked in 1909 by a prospector named
A.C. Brown, but for a variety of reasons, such as
the Great Fire of July 11, 1911, World War I, and
the stock market crash of 1929, along with a general lack
of funds, the mine had a difficult start-up.

In 1935, a deal was made between Noranda Mines Ltd. and
Pamour Porcupine Mines Ltd. to bring the mine into production
with Quebec Gold as the manager.
The name Pamour comes from a combination of the names of
two prospectors, Firman La Palme, and Wilfrid D'Amour who
were connected to the property at various times.

The Porcupine Joint Venture, a joint development project by
Placer Dome Ltd. and Kinross Gold Corp saw the Pamour pit
back in operation in 2005.
The relocation of Highway 101 allowed for the expansion of
the super pit and rerouted traffic to the south side of
Three Nations Lake.

Reserves are estimated at 1.8 million ounces of gold.

The Kidd Creek Mine /Metallurgical Site

A division of Xstrata Copper, the mine is located
approximately 22 km north of Timmins.
This major ore body was discovered in 1963 and production
began in 1966.

Copper, zinc and silver are mined at the Kidd Creek Mine.
They are then carried by the Kidd Creek railway to
the metallurgical site 10 km away, where it is crushed,
concentrated, and refined.
Production of these base metals is accomplished using
modern mining techniques and equipment.

Mining began as an open pit at the top of the ore deposit
for the first 6 years but gradually turned into an
underground operation in 1973.
This remarkable operation is the largest employer in the
area and is one of the world's premier mining companies.

Together with the Kidd Metallurgical complex, it employs
close to 2,200 employees and contractors.

The Mine D expansion project was completed in 2006 at a
capital cost of C$664 million.
The project included the development of the Mine D shaft
which extends to 9,889 feet below surface and established
production areas at 8,800 feet.
Developed ore reserves now reach to a depth of 9,100 feet.

The Kidd mine -
produces annually around 45,000 tonnes of copper and
130,000 tonnes of zinc contained in concentrates.

Much of this information has been provided by
the Timmins Chamber of Commerce.

Company Statement

Moneta Porcupine Mines Inc. -
(Moneta) is a long established Canadian mining exploration
company which holds an extensive and highquality exploration
portfolio in the prolific Porcupine and
Golden Highway Gold Camps of Northeastern Ontario.

These camps have produced over 70 million ounces of gold
to-date from at least 26 individual mines, each with more
than 100,000 ounces of production.

Moneta's 10 gold properties, eight of which are 100% owned,
are located along 120 km. of the Destor Porcupine Fault
Zone (DPFZ) corridor.
The DPFZ hosts active mines operated by Newmont Mining
Corporation and The Porcupine Joint Venture (Placer Dome Inc.
(51%) and Kinross Gold Corporation (49%)).

Current Operations

Moneta's 10 gold properties are located along 120 km. of
the famous Destor Porcupine Fault Zone.
Most of the historic production in the region is associated
with the Destor, including significant mines currently
operated by The Porcupine Joint Venture (owned by Goldcorp).

Aggressive exploration programs are being undertaken along
its length by a number of junior companies.

Moneta is currently active on three prime Destor gold properties
which include the Golden Highway Project, Nighthawk Lake and
North Tisdale, the latter two in the Porcupine Camp.

Moneta's exploration is focused on gold and its strategy
includes sole-risk and joint venture exploration, optioning
properties, and earning into strategic properties held
by third-parties.
As a result of its exciting recent acquisition of
the Windjammer Project (Windjammer) -
Moneta's primary exploration target is now
the "Golden Highway Project" centered in Michaud Township,
100 km. east of Timmins, in particular, the "southern corridor".

Moneta has built a mostly contiguous land package over the
years of 655 claim units (10,606 hectares) of which slightly
more than half are subject to third-party agreements.

Prior exploration has led to the discovery of several promising
gold zones on the Golden Highway property, including
the Southwest Zone, which has a historical inferred resource
of 624,500 ounces (3.25 million tonnes averaging almost
6 grams/tonne from a prior joint venture resource
estimate developed by Barrick Gold).
The resource estimate was completed in the mid-to-late
1990s when gold traded in the range of $250 to $350 per ounce.
The Golden Highway Project also includes -
the 50/50 Michaud Joint Venture with Acrex Ventures Ltd.
(65 claim units), which has produced several new discoveries
(55 and Western Zones), and three option agreements with -
St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. -
("St Andrew") as well as -
the former Newmont-Moneta Joint Venture.

In early November 2007, Moneta entered into an agreement
with Newmont Canada Limited,
a subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation (Newmont),
to acquire Newmont's interest in a joint venture known as
the Windjammer Project.
The Windjammer property is contiguous on the east with
the Golden Highway property.
Moneta issued 4.4 million common shares to Newmont in
connection with the acquisition (with a hold period
of 12 months).
Moneta now holds a 50% interest and acts as the operator of
the Windjammer Joint Venture.
Moneta has also granted Newmont an option for a period
of 12 months to participate in any equity financing
on a pro rata basis.

Windjammer is comprised of two mining leases (22 mining claims)
in Garrison and Michaud Townships covering 356 hectares.
In the 1980s, drilling by Noranda Inc. identified widespread
gold mineralization in a number of zones and resulted in
two separate gold discoveries,
Windjammer South and Windjammer North,
which have had little further development in the intervening
period. Windjammer South lies one kilometre easterly along
strike on the Destor in the southern corridor from
Moneta's Southwest Zone.
Both zones are open on three sides and at depth.

Windjammer South in combination with Moneta's Southwest Zone
and the 55 Zone represents a southern corridor strike length
of approximately four kilometres with gold mineralization
occurring within altered Timiskaming sediments along
the entire length.
Several exploration holes drilled in the areas in between
Windjammer South and the Southwest Zone produced
intersections and grades similar to those of both zones,
which were not followed up with any further drilling.
The analysis of the prior drilling and new digital modeling
of Windjammer South indicate that the deposit is likely part
of the same geological system as the Southwest Zone.
The acquisition of Windjammer has enabled Moneta to explore
and develop the entire area on an integrated basis.
